Ahead of the forthcoming Governorship Election in Bayelsa State, six governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), visited Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan at his residence in Abuja on Sunday to seek his support for Douye Diri, the candidate of the PDP.
According to reports, the six governors were; Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, Darius Ishaku of Taraba State, David Umahi of Ebonyi State, Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State and Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State.
Following the closed-door meeting, Jonathan reportedly agreed to work for the victory of Dr. Diri. The ex-president further vehemently rejected reports that he was plotting to work for the candidate of the opposition All Progressives Congress, David Lyon.
He also noted that contrarily to reports, he has no personal grievances against the PDP candidate and the current governor of the state, Seriake Dickson.
